Haggis Hunter (Grade 3+ - Intermediate to Expert)

Head down along a single track which traverses across the hill down to the Mt Cargill Track. This is a technical XC track, with steep log drops, a narrow bridge, rock drop, wet roots and tight corners.

Access Info

There are two main track sections in Bethune’s Gully – an older track (the Haggis Hunter) on the true right hand side of Lindsay Creek. And a newer set of tracks (Nationals XC) on the true left hand side. These refer to the tracks in relation to where they are as you face downstream, looking back at the car park at Bethune’s Gully picnic area.
